I completed an Amazon listing for a client. I even gave the client a draft before I finalized the delivery. He was good with SEO terms I used. I actually ended up doing research for him because he was using brand names in his description, which Amazon does not allow.
I did my honest best. I think part of the problem is that he doesn’t really understand Amazon listings, but he bought a course on Amazon listings and is taking every different approach and mashing them together.
“The description section is a mess,” he wrote.
I asked specifically what we wanted me to fix.
He said he hired me so he wouldn’t have to deal with specifics.
“You have to understand, when people hire a freelancer it’s so we don’t have to worry about that specific task so we can concentrate on other tasks. I want a freelancer to put the time and effort to it like their own money’s on the line.” CLIENT
I do take every job I do personally.
I have worked so hard to make it to Level 2 Seller.
“As I said I’m flexible on the due date. I can’t really have a complete listing until the photographs are complete. Here’s what I was expecting. Take 1-2 hours for when you’re free, get in the creative spirit, and approach this like it’s your listing. Make it look great. That’s most likely what’s going to earn a good tip and a stellar review from me.” CLIENT
This is a $32 (after 20%) job. I did my best. I have done Amazon listings before with success. I spent roughly three to four hours already on the job.
But, I don’t know what he wants, he won’t tell me what wants other than a complete listing, he’s been rude and condescending. I know sometimes you have to basically work for free. Some jobs are like that. I can see this guy playing “Did you guess the right formula for a listing because I will not be happy until some private expectation is met” game indefinitely.
I am so tired of being bullied. I work so hard. I realize most sellers on Fiverr work very hard also. I am not trying to be offensive.
I wrote him this morning:
“I will revise your listing to fulfill the Modified Work Request. Threatening me with a bad review is unacceptable.” ME
I have a 5-star rating. What do I do? I have 84 5-star reviews. This guy could turn around and give me a lousy review no matter what I do…
When do you draw the line? Where do you draw the line?
Help me…Thank you…
